I am beyond upset right now...UPDATE!!!!!!

Sunday, December 21, 2008

Words can not express how upset I am today. I am trying to just let it go and say that stuff happens and what can you do but I am so so bummed..I was gone all afternoon and when I came home DH said the computer was acting up. I shut it down and went out to pick up a few last minute items for Christmas since I was given a couple of gift cards from friends. When I got home I wanted to upload my pics from my Prima class and blog a bit but the computer would not start. It would stay stuck at the windows xp start window and this happen over and over again. So me thinking I am so smart decided to do a system recovery. I figured this would solve any problems I was having. I did not understand tho that it would erase ALL my files. When I say ALL my files I am talking about ALL my pictures. YEP every picture I have since Mat and I started dating, Lily's birth, Scott's soccer game. Numerous events I haven't even scrapped yet because I am a messy scrapper and never scrap in order. I just can't believe that they are all gone but I can not find the files anywhere and I am really upset over this. I saved some stuff to Photobucket and I am not sure if I can retrieve it back. if i can it would have to be one by one....UGH! Oh wait! I think Lily's birthday may be there.
I do have one disc that thankfully Mat copied to clear up space a few months back and Lily's birth and first Christmas is on there. I am so thankful for that.
So no crafts today just a rant. Word to the wise, copy your pics to disc or backup your files.
I'll post about my workshop tmr and have pics of my project, this hullabaloo took the wind out of my sails a bit today.
Happy Sunday!

Ok so after spending the entire trying to fix all my progams and such DH comes to take a look because he was watching football and finds all the pictures!!!!!!! Of course I have bow to him and chant that he's the world's greatest husband but he did it! Now I am hoping when he comes home later because he just left to go watch the late game at his buiddies that he can recover all my Itunes downloads that I had too! Only problem left is that my HP photo printer will not reinstall. Something is wrong in an EXE file which is Greek to me but Dh says if they reboot Windows it should fix it...OY!!! What a mess but I just want to tell everyone that left me love that I appreciate YOU ALL SO MUCH! Thanks for being there for me in my panic! Ok...back to trying to save all my bookmarks again.

Oh gosh! I am just sick for you right now! How awful! Could you take your computer to someone or have the geek squad from Best Buy come out and see if they can retieve any of the files? It would be worth looking into! I always upload mine to snapfish when I take them off my camera as a second backup. I am sooooooo sorry this happened! :(

Beate said...

No!!! i am so sorry Shemaine! That is like a worst nightmare come true. I hope you can find a way to retrieve some of them!

Melissa F. said...

Oh, no. That's awful. I'm so sorry you lost everything. Computers are such a headache sometimes, but that's just really frustrating. I hope you can salvage some of the pics off Photobucket! :O(

Christina said...

Oh no! My heart just sank for you! My brother is a computer guy...let me ask him if he knows if they can be recovered or not. I will txt you and let you know. *hugs*

Jessica said...

oh Shemaine I am so sorry for you! I will keep my fingers crossed that you still have some photobucket pics!

Denise said...

Oh My Gosh! I feel so bad for you! You must be devastated...(big hugs your way) I hope you can recover some of them!

Brynn said...

I sent you an e-mail. My hubby can come to the rescue! No worries!

Rosie said...

Well I am glad DH recovered your pictures! It would be nice to get all your iTunes back too, but the pictures...Oh I was having a heart attack for you! Then I read the update! I was away all weekend. My sister got married and sunday I was too darn tired to even look at my computer, nevermind sit at the desk! I once had to take all my pictures and upload them to disks so we could fix my computer. So far I haven't had to do that with this computer, but just in case I have most of my pictures on websights like Shutterfly, just in case!

Jessica said...

oh that is awesome news!
